Questions From Caz:

  1. Are you more of a morning person or an evening person?  I am definitely an evening/night person. I get my most creative moments at night. I normally have more energy at night and feel more alert. Everything kind of slows down at night and I have less distractions.
  2. What genres do you like to read or watch?  I am a huge science fiction and fantasy fan when it comes to my TV shows and movies. When it comes to reading and podcast, I love to listen to anything that is motivating and inspiring. I often read spiritual and self-help books.
  3. What spices do you like? I enjoy using turmeric and not spice my foods. I take turmeric daily as an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. Turmeric has the ability to stimulate the release serotonin and dopamine in the brain. Taking curcumin may address anxiety and depression and improve an individual’s emotional well-being.
  4. What kind of food makes you feel at home? Soul food makes me feel at home. As a African American and as a part of Black culture, south food is down-home cooking that’s been passed down through many generations, with its roots in the rural South. My plate would consist of collard greens, rice, gravy, macaroni pie, yams, dressing, fried chicken, and cranberry sauce.
  5. What do you enjoy about blogging? I like the exchange. I like to talk about what I know or have experience with and have others to do the same. I have always enjoyed learning from others and feel that other’s life experiences help me to learn more about myself as well.
  6. What places do you feel most at ease? In my own space. My room is my safe space and my everything else in between. My room the environment that I can depend on to allow me to relax and recharge. On second thought, the beach does have a calming effect on me as well.
  7. If expenses were no object, would you want to live in the same place all your life or move often? I would want to live in the same place but travel when I felt like it. I like the idea of having a home and a place to come back to. It’s something comforting about having a constant in your life.
  8. What games do you like to play? I love to play video games. I am a PC and xbox player w/keyboard and mouse. I love first person shooter games, but that is new. My background is in play massive multiplayer online role playing games.
  9. What is a healthy habit you have? Drinking water, water, water. Sometimes I do not reach my daily goal, but I really enjoy drinking water. I try to remember to bless my water and visualize it healing my body.
  10. What helps you navigate? My inner guidance system and my intuition. I try to focus on trusting myself to know myself.
